    I would assume so as the corsa is the same only changes when DPF is fitted.
    As for the epas there is two types one has a smooth base and the other is a ribbed base( like cooling fins) both TRW pumps

    EDIT is the frame def bent as the frame does need to be dropped to do the PAS according to sources lol
    My EPC list the phase 1 zaf that is the same across the board( via updated parts so they may differ) pt no24404276 also fitted to the astra G
